DON’T FORGET THE SEASOL. Yes, we all like to give our plants the best start in life and for many years Seasol has been helping us to take care of our plants. Colin visited a garden near the coast in East Fremantle that is testament to that.
The owner of this delightful small garden has been an avid Seasol user for many years and you can see the amazing results, and today Colin has a very nice surprise for her. There is a new and easy way to apply her favourite seaweed solution Seasol to all the plants in her beautiful garden, new Seasol Plant + Soil Booster.
This natural pelletised plant and soil treatment is a rich source of natural ingredients, seaweed and compost to boost soil health and growth in all plants including Natives.
The included seaweed stimulates root development and encourages strong growth helping the plants to cope with environmental stresses such as heat, drought, frost, pests and diseases.
Use about a handful of Seasol Plant + Soil Booster around all the plants in your garden or about 100 grams or two handfuls per square metre, about every 6 to 8 weeks and carefully mix it in. It contains a rich source of readily available natural ingredients and seaweed to promote vigorous growth, improve flowering and fruiting, to increase your overall crop or yield.
Seasol Plant + Soil Booster contains natural composts, humic acids and organic matter, which help to improve the overall soil structure, and increase worm and microbial activity. This in turn helps to improve soil moisture levels and the uptake of plant nutrients. Remember to always water it in thoroughly after each application to activate the Seasol Plant + Soil Booster, stimulating the micro-organisms and bacteria into action
Colin is planting some different types of basil for summer including lemon, lime, purple and Thai. The first step is to dig a hole for each plant, add a handful of Seasol Plant + Soil Booster to the bottom of the hole and mix it in. Next cover with 5cm of soil, place the rootball of the basil on top, carefully backfill around the plant and then gently firm it down. Plus, don’t forget to water them in with some Seasol.
Seasol Plant + Soil Booster can also be easily applied to all your potted plants outside in the garden, under the alfresco or inside the home. Use a handful per 200mm pot, scattered over the soil surface of the pot around every 6 weeks and then water it in.
For established lawns, a regular application of around two handfuls or 100 grams per square metre every 6 weeks will be just the tonic for your lawn. Remember to water it in thoroughly. If you want to look after your garden above and below the ground, apply Seasol Plant + Soil Booster from the makers of Seasol, so you know it works.
You can find Seasol Plant + Soil Booster at Bunnings Stores throughout Australia in a 10 kg bag and look out for a 4 kg bag later in the year. To find out more go to Seasol.com.au.
